CATHODE SEALING EQUIPMENT
GNA alutech is a leading supplier of cathode assembly systems for different technologies (Pechiney, Sumitomo, Rio Tinto Alcan…). In almost three decades of experience in aluminum smelters, GNA has developed a comprehensive understanding of the rodding process and its stringent requirements.
Integration of furnaces, machinery and process technology with minimal personnel supervision are key objectives in all systems supplied by GNA alutech.
Operator safety, comfort and simplicity of control are also important features of our equipment.
